Located in Xishuangbanna, China, the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden covers an area of almost 2,000 acres. It is China's largest tropical garden. The full name of the garden is Tropical Plant Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Science. (Big name for a big garden!) As you can guess, the garden is used for research, and contains over 10,000 species of tropical plants.
There are thirteen separate gardens within the main garden. These include a tropical fruit tree section, shade plants, palms, water plants, national plants, and medicinal plants.
